Crazyfishlady Posted December 25, 2014 Report Share Posted December 25, 2014 My new 2.6 gallon houses 4 yellow neos. They have been hiding since I set up the tank. Occasionally they would skirt around. I took the large lava rock out as it took up a lot of space (even though I loved the look). They still seemed to spend most of their time hiding behind the wood. The temp fluctuated a lot, even though I had heard neos could handle this, it bothered me. Yesterday I got the cobalt 25 watt heater and set it up. Within about 20 minutes the temp was a constant 72. Within an hour, the 4 little shrimp came out of hiding. Today they are all scurrying about and exploring. Could the heater have made such a difference? If so.. I will never do a tank without one again. One molt this morning even. Not sure if the tank settling had something to do with it, but they seem to love the heater's affects.
